Charles, you look like you are having too much fun, except for the ant biting | bike tumbling escapade! Toni and I were watching the Today Show on Belize and wondering if you were on the shore watching live? Don't forget to come back home, if you can remember where it is. The temp will be 20 degrees F tonight! Greg S. 11-20-08 2135 hrs
